Daily News

A Brooklyn, N.Y., mother has been arrested after she abandoned her two toddler girls on a sidewalk, according to the Daily News. The mother, Dalisha Adams, 26, was last seen cursing out her daughters, according to police and neighbors. She was charged with two counts of endangering a child.

Her two daughters, Diani, 3, and Dominae, 2, were out in the cold for hours wandering the street when someone noticed them. They were a mile and a half from where they live.

A neighbor said that she often heard the mother yelling "Shut the f--- up" to the children and threatening to "punch" one of them in the face.

This is a sad case all around. If the mother indeed did what is alleged, the children may be better off not being reunited with her.
